I need more info on eggshells and teeth!

05/05/2008

Question:

Ok, I am doing a research paper on how eggshells are similar to teeth, but every site I have been on has mostly talked about both can be weakened by acid and they are made of calcium salts(calsium carbonate/phosphate). Is there more similarities?

Answer:

None that I am aware of. Most student science fair projects utlize egg shells to mimick bleaching of teeth.

For more information:
